In Topic: Things you'd do if you weren't lazy

Similar to most, languages etc, me and my mate are lazy, and I mean lazy. In ours we bought a two pack of washing up liquid, they were in a pack attached to each other, we used them at the same time without seperating them because we couldn't be arsed. I remember shouting through to the living room once what time was it because I couldn't be arsed looking up at the clock.


Very funny , but so close to home in our house -  i bought my wife a bike at least 10 years ago and it has never been taken out of the cardboard box it has sat in the most untidy garage in the world ever since .

We see the effects of Acterberg's coaching every game. If he was a great coach we'd see an upturn in their performances based on before and after working with him, but every keeper, without fail, has regressed.


If a team regresses badly when a manager takes over you'd sack the manager, wouldn't you? If a manager managed a large sample size of teams and made all of them regress you'd say he was a poor manager, wouldn't you? Why is Acterberg seemingly the only coach in the world immune to this phenomena? 


The keepers are both shit and out of their depth , I wouldnt have a clue if the coach is any good but you cant polish a turd as the saying goes , and these pair are mid table goalies at best

Do you think Mourinho would be insane enough to sell Martial to us for £60m?


Are you being serious ?

You're in denial if you don't think Acterberg is causing it. Mignolet statistically was ranked one of the best keepers in the league for 2 years in a row before he signed for us. He was actually ranked the best in his final year at Sunderland. First year with us he's outside the top 10. After three years working with Acterberg, Myhill and Rob Elliot are better than him.


Karius was one of the best goalkeepers in the Bundesliga before he arrived. People on here were saying "this is the keeper that will solve our goalkeeping problems". He was perceived by the German media as the heir to Manual Neuer's throne. Arrives here. Bottom 5 in the league pretty much consistently ever since.


Pepe Reina, one of the best keepers we've ever had. Went to complete shit under Acterberg. He moves to Napoli and starts working with Rafa again and suddenly finds his form.


The problem is the coach. He doesn't instill any confidence in them. They go out on the field with a rabbit in the headlights look on their faces every game. They show no leadership qualities. That's all on the coach.


If a striker is petrified to shoot and and shits himself in every 1 v 1 you'd say, "who's doing the attacking drills for this guy?". There would be repercussions. Why is there no accountability when it comes to the keepers?


With all due respect I dont think you can blame a coach for the fuck ups we have seen for these two clowns we have in goal - they are both fundamentally shit and have to proven to be after a massive hike in expectancy and arriving at a huge club like ours . 


The fuck ups Karius made showed just how totally inept he is when under pressure - he was fucking up in his first pre season games after his arrival - all this talk of him having a really good spell after klopp made him number 1 was just wishful thinking he was never going to be a top goalie
